  • 2015 Valara Grignolino d'Asti La Bambina 89 Points

    Italy, Piedmont, Asti, Grignolino d'Asti

    The nose was holding back, with only hints of red fruit and floral tones. On the palate, I found soft textures with pure cherry and strawberry, zesty mouthwatering acidity and inner floral tones. A buzz of acidity and fruit extract lasted long on the finish. There’s potential here, yet the bouquet is currently very hard to read.
